This year’s 46th Annual Gala, “A Speakeasy Soiree,” is Saturday, April 27, in the charming warehouse at the Maumee Bay Brewing Co. The goal is to raise more than $200,000 in one night to support Maumee Valley's mission to provide a personal, experiential, and global education for students and to recruit, retain, and develop outstanding faculty. The event includes an open bar, strolling dinner, a live auction, and new this year ... dueling pianos! There also is a weeklong online silent auction.
